Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a CHS sponsor?

Yes. A CHS sponsor is an active CHS investigator who receives contract funds as a member of a Committee, Chair of a Working Group or who is associated with a CHS field center. The CHS Sponsor must be included as a coauthor or coinvestigator.

How can I obtain access to the internal CHS website?

Create an online account. This is a 2-step process which requires approval by the Coordinating Center on the same or next business day.

What is the approximate duration of the CHS review process?

For proposals, allow roughly 4 weeks for full CHS approval, from the time you submit the proposal to receipt of a formal approval memo. For the penultimate draft, please allow about 2-5 weeks, depending on type of review.

My results are too much for one paper. Can I write 2 papers at once?

All manuscripts must be preceded by a proposal. Please submit a second paper proposal to the P&P with a note justifying the separation of previously approved analyses. In addition, please submit a revised proposal or analysis plan for the parent paper, so that the P&P can ensure that each paper will be a viable effort and so that the description online is accurate and up-to-date.
